As part of the Global Diaspora Week, the Organisation for Diaspora Initiatives (ODI), New Delhi, the Diaspora Studies journal, in collaboration with the Economic and Political Development Concentration at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) organize a panel discussion on South Asian diaspora communities in the United States and their economic, social, and political interactions in their countries and communities of origin.

Specifically, the program focuses on the interlinkages between economic integration of communities in the host context, the United States, and their potential to contribute to causes and development in their communities of origin. The discussions will also highlight the role of public policies in the receiving and the sending context, as well as differences among regional groups, individual and collective actions, as well as the role of socio-economic status and gender of migrants.
